And no, using the word tragedy is not hyperbole. We love Glasserie and are dubious that it will be worth visiting once they lose their chef Sara Kramer. She says she’ll leave by the end of February at the latest. We’re just getting over Gwynnet St closing which, incidentally, is recovering nicely as Lachlan and still […]
Everything is better with its own soundtrack, even art. That is where Justin F. Valls comes in. This sound designer and photog combines his passions in a unique exhibition titled Peacock Farm, which strikes ears and eyes together telling the sequential story of a natural builder. Valls’ photography will stick around a while, but to get […]
The Viking invasion continues. First there were the Scandinavian Torst and Luksus, followed by Dirck the Norseman, Konditori and Aska. (Ok, Aska is technically on the border of Greenpoint). Now, Budin is open, serving up its own blend of “high-end Scandinavian roasts“: The $7 latte is here. The Nordic coffeehouse Budin opens this morning in Greenpoint, […]
Spotted on Freeman St in Greenpoint, care of Greenpointers.

That said, those ramps always feel pretty precarious, even when there’s good weather. About 10 people had crossed the India Street ramp less than a minute before the […]
Anyone who follows this site knows we love Glasserie (aka Greenpoint’s best restaurant). That said, this is horrible news! I know it may come as a surprise to those of you distant enough from the situation. But for those of you who are closer, you know that it has been a long time coming. Despite […]
Ms Dunham sent it out on Instagram yesterday and, well, we love it. Hopefully it will be better than the current season of Girls, which frankly is boring the hell out of us. (We’re enjoying the much funnier Broad City!) Random House will publish Not That Kind of Girl on October 7 and it better […]
The Marked Men played three sold out shows at Saint Vitus last weekend. You can watch their last and imho best set in full below.
We’re happy to report that Bushwick has a city councilman who’s willing to fight the endless construction of “luxury” high rises: “I intend on implementing the rezoning as a means to preserve the character of the neighborhood,” said Reynoso. Reynoso said he believes special, low-zoned areas could help keep the neighborhood from suffering from the […]
